As usual, the meme king made the reveal in a unique way. Spoofing the opening to Marvel movies, Lil Nas X introduced Montero with a cinematic album trailer containing clips from his videos for “Old Town Road”, “Panini”, “Holiday”, and “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)”. It also includes a snippet of an unreleased song, in which Lil Nas raps, “Couple Grammys on him/ Couple plaques, eh, that’s a fact.” Check out the Montero album trailer below.
Following the record-breaking success of “Old Town Road”, Lil Nas dropped his debut EP, 7, in June 2019. Since returning in November 2020 with “Holiday”, Nas has been a renewed target for conservative critics. His “Montero” video and “Satan shoe” caused a fair amount of pearl clutching, while his same-sex kiss at the BET Awards on Sunday night was catnip for homophobic trolls. Lil Nas X released “Sun Goes Down” in late May.
